  • Nielsen produced a power-play assist in Friday's 2-1 win over the Blackhawks. With only two points in 12 games since he was activated from injured reserve, Nielsen continues to fade into obscurity. Granted, he was involved on the man advantage in this one, but the power-play rink run has been sporadic, and the Dane is trying to adjust to a fourth-line role.

  • Nielsen (upper body) was removed from injured reserve ahead of Tuesday's clash with Buffalo. Nielsen missed the past five games due to his upper-body issue. Prior to getting hurt, the winger notched just one point in his previous seven appearances despite averaging 1:25 of ice time with the man advantage. The Dane should slot into a third-line role but could challenge Brendan Perlini for a top-six spot.

  • Nielsen (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday. The placement of Nielsen on IR all but guarantees the center will be out of the lineup against Buffalo and Columbus on Thursday and Friday, respectively. With Nielsen unavailable, the club recalled Taro Hirose from the minors while Valtteri Filppula figures to continue slotting into a top-six role.

  • Coach Jeff Blashill has ruled Nielsen (upper body) out for Monday's game against the Flyers, and the forward remains day-to-day, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports. Nielsen's day-to-day status suggests he has a good chance to return for at least one game of Detroit's back-to-back later in the week, as the Red Wings will travel to Buffalo on Thursday and Columbus on Friday. His status isn't of much concern in the fantasy realm considering Nielsen has just three goals and four assists in 46 games this season.

  • Nielsen (upper body) won't play Saturday against the Rangers, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports. Nielsen just came back from an upper-body injury but appears to have re-aggravated whatever was bothering him in Detroit's last game. As a result, he'll miss Saturday's contest versus the Rangers. No word on how long he'll be out this time, but expect the Red Wings to update his status after Saturday's game.
